Irritable Pause

I am massively irritated by my life. Yes, yes, I'm taking steps to make changes. I am impatient, hence the irritation. Even doing my part, some of this is out of my control. Some of it I'm gonna mess up. Add some PMS into the mix...

Scarf Knitting- Got several projects going. The Cactaur/ Final Fantasy Scarf is progressing in length. I am also making design changes as I go. I am trying various details on the Cactaur until it looks right. I am also trying to add another character to balance the other side of the scarf. My son and I decided that Chocobo is too detailed for this project. The Black Mage is a better choice. I have a pixellated image that will be graphed.

Ravelympics- I'm knitting for the Slacker Team in Ravelympics. I've started a bag pattern that is low stress stockinette stitch. The only hitch is that I'm adjusting the color pattern to accomodate the amount of yarn on hand. I'm using Paton's Soy Wool Stripes (and Solids) in Plum and Geranium colorways. I've got just enough yarn to make a small bag in each color.

Other projects are in my head (development stages) or littering the landscape.

Stressors: I'm trying to lose weight (eternally), my bathroom is being renovated (since May) and each day has it's own momentum (prices go up), job hunting (rejection sucks, silence ain't so great either),

Wow, no wonder you're irritable. Job hunting alone is enough to make anyone stressed then add pms, bathroom uprooted, etc. And, don't know bout you but trying to lose weight makes me very, very grumpy. Have given up on it myself lately. Hang in there!

I've just been through job rejection, too. It is a pain. Now I am back to the hunt, but not happily--I really wanted that job. Oh, well, guess it works out for the best. Love your black kitty avatar on Ravelry. I'll try to visit often (archaeologie on Ravelry).

I think the whole rejection thing is why I'm still at a job I'm not really thrilled with anymore. so think I understand. I understand impatience too. Keep your chin up! The scarf is coming out really nice, although i don't know much about those characters.
